I'll Never Be The Same
As Director of an international group of schools, I have become increasingly aware of the need for a new impulse within education that will inspire the next generation with the passion, confidence and ability to take the lead in organisations, in society, in their local communities and in their own lives. The GenDerations prorgamme steps boldly into this gap and offers young people essential skills and tools that are dearly needed as this generation grow into adulthood. It is a unique programme that I have seen to have deep and lasting impact in every young person who participates. My two teenage sons have completed the programme and have been transformed by it. I am planning to introduce the GenDerations programme into all of our schools worldwide as soon as they become available, which sadly they are not yet
The Mentor Training was organised professionally, well presented and methodically sound; additionally it offered a very practical approach and touched me surprisingly deep. Beyond my initial desire to contribute to others, I felt contributed to in my own personal growth. I learned things which will benefit me and my family for years to come.Robert Braissant, Bern, Switzerland

I was very impressed by the sensitivity, equanimity and consciousness of the men and women that will be facilitators of the GenDerations program.Helena Trachsel
